Jeremiah 2:4 - 2:8

4 Hear the word of Yahweh, O house of Jacob and all the families of the house of Israel. 5 Thus says Yahweh,
“What injustice did your fathers find in Me,
That they went far from Me
And walked after vanity and became vain?
They did not say, ‘Where is Yahweh
Who brought us up out of the land of Egypt,
Who led us through the wilderness,
Through a land of deserts and of pits,
Through a land of drought and of the shadow of death,
Through a land that no one crossed
And where no man inhabited?’
I brought you into the fruitful land
To eat its fruit and its good things.
But you came and defiled My land,
And My inheritance you made an abomination.
The priests did not say, ‘Where is Yahweh?’
And those who handle the law did not know Me;
The shepherds also transgressed against Me,
And the prophets prophesied by Baal
And walked after things that did not profit.
